Ghost Tiger

By hibbary
A spirit tiger, forming out of the ether.

Painted all in oil on a weird, hand-dyed sheet of paper I've been hoarding for ages. I use a loooooooot of thinner, and so it comes out looking like watercolor in some places. But no, it's oil :3

I'm still playing around with tension between fully rendered vs. flat in the treatment of the figure. And color, as always. I'm slowly getting better, I think.

And I may fool with it yet :F I think I see some spots I want to dicker around with already.

Is it possible to color with oils over watercolor? 
hibbary's avatar
Yes! Oil medium can go over any water medium, but not the other way around.

Awesome! I like how you made the tail like a sort of half negative image! And the tiger's right foot, sort of blending into the background becoming transparent!

Its very nice. I guess I was mistaken. I hate it when I miss guess media, especially when I use water color myself. Oh well.

Cooool Painting, was this done in water color?

This one was actually oil, but I can see why you guessed watercolor. I used a lot of thinner. So it was sort of like... turpenoid-natural-color.
